SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES AND TRANSPARANCY

 

MANUFACTURING

_

People Tree actively supports farmers, producers and artisans through 14 producer groups, in 6 countries. We are a part of the WFTO community and a representative of Fair Trade, this means far more than paying a fair price, we provide technical assistance for producers, so they can improve their skills, strengthen their businesses and have a positive social impact. It is a partnership between producers and traders, which aims at sustainable development for excluded and economically disadvantaged people in developing countries. 

MATERIAL

_

Our producers use traditional skills and combine them with new innovative technologies to support and grow their businesses. By using skills such as hand weaving, hand knitting or hand embroidery we create employment in rural areas where work is often scarce and guarantee the production is carbon neutral. All clothes are dyed using low impact dyes, free from harmful azo chemicals which are frequently used in clothing manufacture. We use natural materials where possible, avoiding plastic and toxic substances.

STANDARDS

_

People Tree is an active member of many Fair Trade, social justice and environmental networks. We are accredited by the WFTO, the Fairtrade Foundation, and the Soil Association. People Tree is proud to work with certified producers and their supply chains from the raw material to the finished fabric and garment. People Tree is certified by the following organisations: GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), SOIL ASSOCIATION,
FLO (Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International), FAIR TRADE FOUNDATION

DE ALLERMOOISTE COLLECTIES GEMAAKT VANUIT EEN GOED HART

Zo'n twintig jaar geleden werd dit merk opgericht door de Britse Safia Minney. In een interview met Harper's Bazaar zei ze destijds: 'Toen ik begon had fair trade kleding nogal een geitenwollensokken reputatie. Lang begrepen mensen ook niet hoe duurzaamheid en ondernemen vielen te combineren. Maar nu is groen het nieuwe zwart. Die groei is heel goed, maar sommige bedrijven gebruiken duurzaamheid slechts als marketingtruc. Het is voor consumenten soms moeilijk verschil te zien tussen merken als People Tree, dat honderd procent toegewijd is, en bedrijven die maar een beetje duurzaam zijn.'
